On December 18, the U.S. iTunes K-Pop Chart revealed that BTS claimed first place with their album “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life Pt. 2” and their title track from the same album “Run.”
The top 100 songs chart lists a total of 13 BTS songs. “DOPE” is in third place, “Butterfly” is in sixth place, and “I Need U” is in seventh place. Despite having released “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life Pt. 1” several months ago, the album and songs are doing quite well in addition to their more recent album.
The U.S. iTunes K-Pop Chart was created about a week ago. The inclusion of K-pop in the store and chart reflects the growing popularity of K-pop. Likewise, it appears as though BTS is enjoying great popularity in the U.S. and many other nations as well.
